Art Deco, vintage Hollywood glamour and contemporary design converge at Hotel deLuxe. The 1912 building’s original features shine through, with golf-leaf crown molding, ornate box ceilings and the elegant crystal chandeliers that hang above rounded, high-back booths in Gracie’s restaurant. In the lobby, intimate seating areas are formed with armchairs, couches and small tables throughout the space. Black and white photos and film stills nod to the Old Hollywood undercurrent at this Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel — each floor is dedicated to a famous genre. Rooms are all unique reflecting the original sizes and configurations of the historic building, but each is decorated with a light, classic palette of yellows and creams.
Built in 1912 and renovated in 2006, Hotel deLuxe brings Old Hollywood elegance to the Rose City. Painstakingly refurbished, the original details — including gold-leaf crown molding — were left in place and complemented by an art deco/modern Hollywood aesthetic that pays tribute to the trends of the 1920s to 1940s. The result? A space that feels luxurious, inviting and fun. Each floor of the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel was curated to pay homage to a specific Hollywood genre, such as Alfred Hitchcock. Plus, backlit mirrored plaques describe the theme of each floor. Guest rooms feel elegant and modern — with a touch of femininity — with accents like crystal lamps and pillow-top mattresses, and high-tech amenities include flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations.
